Peppermint Oreo Balls – your favorite oreo balls with a wintery twist!
It’s OREO Cookie Balls season!
Also known as, my favorite time of year!
You guys, I love the fact that no matter where the Christmas party is or who’s invited, I know that someone will be showing up with OREO Cookie Balls. And I also know that I’ll be strategically positioning myself as close to them as possible.
‘Tis the season!
I remember the exact moment I tried an OREO Cookie Ball. I can tell you exactly where I was standing in my grandparents’ house and what kind of Christmas tin the OREO Cookie Balls were in. That probably sounds weird to those of you who aren’t obsessed with food but for me, that just means that it’s true love between me and the OREO Cookie Balls.
I picked up a couple packs of OREO Cookies while perusing the holiday section of Walmart. Which is my current favorite hobby. I picked up a pack of Mint OREO Cookies for these Peppermint Oreo Cookie Balls and then picked up a package of the winter ones because both the baby (who’s not a baby) and I started shrieking “SNOWMAN OREO!” as soon as we spotted the package.
I cannot resist the red filling of the winter ones. Ugh, so good.
Anyway, to make these I followed the traditional OREO Cookie Balls recipe except I used the mint ones instead of the regular ones and then I used white almond bark in place of the semisweet chocolate. Finally, I crushed a couple candy canes and sprinkled the dust on top. I love how broken candy cane pieces look, especially on top of the white almond bark. So pretty – just begging to be eaten!
